What have you learnt in Hifi?
« Reply #45 on: August 12, 2019, 07:12 »
The only thing that matters is the room. Get the room right, a $5000 system sound better than a $50,000 in a bad room. No money or waf concern for room acoustics? Do the minimal and use room correction. Oh, and snake oil are aplenty in this emotional industry.

fully agree.

my observations are as follows:
when listening at low volumes (~70dB) the room doesn’t really affect the music.
once the volume is cranked up to normal levels (~85-95dB) the room acoustics start to interfere with the music. (eg. honkiness, 45Hz headache/earthquake like feel)
i personally don’t listen at very high loudness levels so don’t really know what happens at the 100-105dB levels.

more expensive doesn't always mean better, system synergy is more important than how well each equipment sounds individually, the type of sound you like doesn't mean other people will like , newer stuff doesn't always be better than older ones. Dun get too obsessed with power cords

Actually, sellection of music type depends on mood. Bad/lousy mood tends to listen to hard or heavy rock. Relax mood mean sentimental or ballad music will be just fine.

Bro, instead of killing, I think you're in a mood of making babies after your death metal session. I'd be killing my wife on the bed.

When i was in my teens, listening to hard rock on my walkman puts me to sleep. Jazz and classical keeps me wide awake and irritated.
